Design for America is a national network of innovators working together to improve their local communities through design. DFA was founded at Northwestern in 2009 and has since spread to college campuses nationwide. The network has tackled hundreds of challenges—ranging from accessible healthcare to drinkable water—and has inspired more than 4,000 passionate students, educators, and design professional across the country. These projects have led to startup ventures including the Chicago based Swipesense, which focuses on hand santization in hospitals and recently completed a Series B for $10.6M.

Come here how DFA is shaping the next generation of social innovators and how you can get involved.

Dinner will be provided.
